that kid is messed up. he shot his friend in the face over a girl at 12 years old. his so called friend will have mental and physical issues the rest of his life. adding the fact what his family and his real friends will have to go through. that boy needs to be put into prison or a mental institution fro what he has done. we almost lost a great person all because he way over exaggerated about his feeling. I'm all for expressing your feeling and self but this isn't what people mean.
